Gammon Tip: DG and the GNU Bot

DailyGammon is really a great site to play backgammon. But you probably know that already if you are reading this. One great feature that most people don't know about -- is that you can play the GNU bot right at DailyGammon!

Just go to the Game Lounge and go to the bottom of the page (where you can "Find a player whose name starts with:." Just enter "gb001" -- and you can set up matches against the GNU Backgammon software. GNU plays backgammon as well as any human -- so it's great practice. The DailyGammon server allows you to play up to five matches against the bot.

You can see how GNU plays and get a sense for some winning strategy.
